Fashion is a very well-loved industry especially during these times as it is one of the most healthy ways for self-expression- different fabrics, different cuts, styles, prints- we all can’t get enough, because a wide range of choices can also mean endless possibilities.

However, we can’t just turn a blind eye to how it’s badly hurting the environment due to the emission of greenhouse gases, excessive use of energy, and relatively huge carbon emissions. Not to forget, the millions of non-biodegradable unused textiles and unsold clothes being dumped every single year.

And so, as fashion enthusiasts, it is our duty to save mother Earth. How can we rock these beautiful looks if the world, our runway, is dying… right?

Here are some Instagram online shops that sell thrift clothes to save these beautiful pieces from going into the garbage!

If you’re looking for the most timeless pieces like that sleek, black blazer you can wear at work as many times as you want, or those beige high-waisted trousers that are appropriate for your school’s dress code and are perfectly fit during presentations- then this is the shop for you! They have the best selection of high-quality, and even branded pieces that would never leave your closet ever again once you get your hands on them!

3. @fifis_vintage

Have you ever stared at a piece at a physical thrift store and thought- the hem’s too low, or the cut is weird, or you want it in a different fabric? This shop reworks old pieces to give a modern touch to the clothes. They can turn long, grandma dresses into coordinates with a crop top and a skirt, plus a matching headband; turn boring polos into bralettes with coverups; and a lot more!
